    With the words of Mrs Merton in my head as she spoke to Paul Daniels wife "what exactly attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels"
    Has the world gone completely off its rocker , being a big fan of Paul McCartney and a signed up member of his personal web page , i get pre release advice of all things Paul related .
    Having prior and "privilege" early access to concert tickets i logged in today ,two days before general release to public, to see the cheapest tickets for the new co-op arena in Manchester are £450, i will spell it incase your eyes are playing up , four hundred and fifty pounds !!!
    Three hours after sales opened there are literally just a handful of tickets left ?
    Is it just me who has lost touch with reality and doesnt now understand the value of a pound anymore , i still see a pound as a lot of money , i refuse to pay a pound for a bottle of pop, ,never buy water at any price and balk at £2 loaf in the local sainsburys .
    Whilst Mr Mr Cartney is a very rich man , i still wonder at how he has taken so long to become a billionaire,perhaps some bad business decisions in the past but to have a ticket price of £450 plus fees is outrageous.
    I last saw him in 2008 as part of Liverpool's cultural city of the year for £40 ticket on the pitch at Anfield (bonus of seeing the back of my head and shoulders on TV and Youtube )
    Sorry but he wont be seeing any of my hard earned pension .
    Crazy rant over.
  2. He'll not be getting any of my hard earned , I think he's an over the hill , overrated and overly boring individual....
    Did I mention I don't really like The Beatles either ??

  3. My son asked us if we would like to go see the Macca concerts in Manchester . No thanks we said - we saw him when he was good in 1963 - don't want to see him now he is old and passed his best - but didn't realise the tickets would be that much

    £450, that’s far too much. Last couple of years suggest his voice is really struggling, so I wouldn’t really be going for the music.

    If I do eventually see him it would be simply nostalgic - to say, to myself, that I’ve seen a living Beatle
  5. He is. He should retire gracefully, the old fart.

  6. Wait till you price up the train tickets to get there and back.

    See there’s far better value elsewhere..

    Ferocious Dog ‘ New Year Eve Party is only £28.00 :D
  8. If you're coming down from the North para, Stevenson's Rocket is pretty good value :thumbsup:

    I grew up with Beatles music and still love all the pre Sergeant Pepper stuff. But I'm sorry to say all of the latest performances by Paul have been really poor and I certainly wouldn't pay to listen to him now.

    It wouldn’t be so bad if he could still sing his voice went years ago

    I see some ticket resale sites have some for £11,000

  11. He's like some terrible old night club crooner. He should be headlining at Batley Working Mens' Club (after the bingo).

    For God's sake, Macca. Jack it in.

    Having spoken to my youngish daughter she says ticket prices have nothing to do with the artists, a frenzy is built up by promoters and the more people that indicate their interests in the shows before the tickets go on sale , then the more expensive the tickets become.
    I agree comments that he is passed his best , and perhaps the 2008 concert was one of his last decent ones before his age began to have an effect on his voice.
    Another viewpoint is to just enjoy the event for what it is and perhaps through rose tinted glasses of his voices better days , but at current prices thats a ask a few steps too far for me.
    As for the £11,000 is that possible to do, isnt there some kind of law against it . ?

    He was downtown last year at The Cheese and Grain. A mate of mine on security didn’t think he was that good, considering the hype.

    Give him a break, he's 82 you know. :)
    Quite amazing really, him and those cheeky octogenarian Rolling Stones chappies.

    in the last year I’ve baulked at some prices. We are going to see the Foo Fighter, which was under £100 to be sat in the stands.

    Smashing Pumpkins at Spurs stadium were about £180 up in the gods, and I politely declined. Pearl Jam tickets were also £140ish iirc and I declined those….

    But I had to laugh… Pearl Jam spent the whole of the 90’s in a legal battle with Ticketmaster over the cost of gig tickets and then they end up with silly prices like these 25 years later!

    However, more recently Ticketmaster sent out an email trying to sell the remaining PJ tickets and they were more reasonably priced at £45 - £65 through out the stadium. There’s obviously some supply and demand marketing going on and I’m pleased that not everyone has succumbed to these inflated prices!
  16. Did he sing "Cheese Leaving Home"?
